In these rapidly changing times, the Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) is innovating to meet the challenge. This flagship educator course is now available online with updated curriculum to focus the course on helping participants make a significant, measurable impact on their organization. Participants will learn to work practically and strategically to translate simulation into gains for their learners, colleagues, and organization.

To leverage your investment in this course and position your work to have the greatest impact, we will ask you to do some work before you arrive. To get buy-in and support for your program, we will help you identify a real problem that can be addressed with simulation (e.g. patient safety issues, curriculum challenges). We will then integrate your questions and challenges about how to address this organizational problem through interactive small group work.

Participants in the course can expect the exceptional educational experience that the Center for Medical Simulation is known for. Each course will feature several CMS faculty, who will work with learners in small groups to develop curriculum to guide their simulation program, to learn Debriefing with Good Judgment©, and to design simulation courses.

Course Objectives:

  • Develop a strategic plan to elicit buy-in, support and make an impact with simulation
  • Develop simulation and curricular designs and assessment strategies for clinical readiness and competence
  • Build a challenging and safe learning environment
  • Conduct and debrief interprofessional simulation scenarios with high learner engagement
  • Apply the “With Good Judgment” approach to affect behavior change in multiple contexts
  • Strengthen your role as an educator and/or change agent


The course will take place over 4 consecutive days. It is our belief that this intense learning experience is best accomplished with continuous, individualized mentoring from highly experienced CMS faculty and the development of a peer-led community of practice.
